AFRS-V-Disc-6




The Army was the original source of the V-Disc records, with their first  being issued in October of 1943.The


Army’s V-Disc project provided a monthly 'care' package of music


specially recorded for troops overseas. Soldiers fighting a far-flung


war welcomed these musical snapshots of life back home.The V-Disc project actually began in June 1941,


six months before the United States' involvement in World War II, when


Captain Howard Bronson was assigned to the Army's Recreation and Welfare


Section as a musical advisor. Bronson suggested the troops might


appreciate a series of records featuring military band music,


inspirational records that could motivate soldiers and improve morale.


By 1942, the Armed Forces Radio Service (AFRS) sent 16-inch, 33 rpm vinyl transcription discs


to the troops from eight sources: special recording sessions, concerts,


recitals, radio broadcasts, film sound tracks and commercial records.

I am so thrilled to hear some more Teddy Wilson.

Thank you for putting up so many of these V-Discs for us. I'm looking forward to hearing them all.
